All Under One Roof!

From lender to guarantor to real estate developer, CSDC's innovative financing and building programs put new and expanding charter schools into efficient yet economical facilities - on time and on budget. CSDC covers the facilities gap so educators can focus on closing the achievement gap.

Real Estate Services

Turnkey Development Program

CSDC's Turnkey Development Program finances, designs, constructs and leases cutting edge, custom facilities built to suit the unique needs of each school's educational model, student population and budget. Our "lease-to-own" model gives young schools access to inviting, modern facilities that they can grow into and take over once they're established.

Consulting and Fee Developer Services

Partner with CSDC and outsource property development and project management while ensuring you get top quality facilities, on budget and on time. We'll oversee the entire process on your behalf - from initial site design and financial modeling through permitting and construction to final punch list and opening day of school.

Lease & Loan Guarantees

Building Block Fund

The Building Block Fund helps charter schools obtain leases and loans by acting as a "co-signer" for the school's payment obligations.  As the largest guaranty program of its kind, the Building Block Fund provides the financial backing charter schools  need to secure educational facilities at an affordable cost.

Indianapolis Building Block Fund

The Indianapolis Building Block Fund works exclusively with charter schools sponsored by the Mayor of Indianapolis and offers credit enhancements for capital financing (tenant improvements, acquisition, renovation or construction) and leases.

Direct Lending

CSDC Direct

CSDC Direct offers a variety of loan products that provide charter schools -  especially new schools with little or no operating or credit history, and those serving low-income communities - with affordable financing options for the acquisition, construction, renovation and expansion of educational facilities.

Mountain West Charter Schools Fund

The Mountain West Charter Schools Fund is a separate fund within CSDC Direct  that provides financing to charter schools located in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming and Arizona.
